One day Calpurnia sees a mad dog and calls Atticus and Maycomb’s sheriff. Atticus arrives at the scene of where the mad dog is and he takes the risk of whether saving people or causing the dog to get even madder. He kills the dog with one clean shot and it shows courage because not many people can shoot good after many years of not shooting and under pressure like Atticus did. All in all Atticus showed courage throughout the story many times, and like he said “real courage is fighting for what is right whether you are right or wrong.” "I hope you've got it through your head that he'll kill us each and every one, Dill Harris. Don't blame me when he gouges your eyes out.
Additionally, due to John’s guilty conscience, he also realizes the value and tenderness that his wife brings him. He accepts his misdoings, and never utters a blame against his wife, for his actions. This shows that John is a very humble and prudent man, which are significant qualities of a good man. Next, John demonstrates courage as he comes
This quote takes place after Atticus has shot a rabid dog that was threatening his children and the neighborhood. Miss Maudie tells Jem and Scout that Atticus was “the deadest shot in Maycomb County in his time,” and was called “Ol’ One-Shot.” Jem and Scout are very surprised. The theme raised by this section is modesty. Just because you have a special ability does not mean that you should use it unnecessarily. By not using his unfair advantage, Miss Maudie figures Atticus is “civilized in his heart.” Another “unfair advantage” throughout the book is skin color.
He finally ties it all together for the reader after talking about Dicks old cellmate, Floyd Wells and how Wells did not want to tell anyone what Dick had told him. Which was Dick and Perry was going to murder Mr. Clutter and all the witnesses. Thanks to Wells they finally had a lead on the murderers. Capote brings all the questions to an end and Dick and Perry are caught. Which they thought they were not ever going to be caught for the murder.
Even though not all the women he killed were prostitutes, never the less according to Ridgway, he thought they all got what they deserved (Dalla et al., 2003) There was never any official diagnosis of Ridgway, however life history, attitude and crimes were a result of an antisocial behaviour disorder of some sort (Burgess et al., 1986). Ridgway’s crimes all had an element of sadistic violence, a trait that is prevalent in psychopathic criminals, (Boer et al., 2003). It is the belief of the authorities that Ridgway
Let the dead bury the dead"(Lee 369). This is proof Tom Robinson is a symbol of a Mockingbird. he was killed for no reason so he was innocent and killed without a reason. Just like there is no reason to kill a Mockingbird, there is no reason to kill an innocent person. When Tom Robinson went to court for his rape case, he had lost the case before the jury even had time to come up with the verdict.
It is a sin to kill a Mockingbird. It is a sin because they are innocent, good, protective animals that mind their own business and don 't do anything but good for their community. In Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird there are three mockingbirds in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama. When there was a problem they could solve, they would solve it. Even if there was something they could do that would help someone in the slightest way they would do it.
Another instance in which ‘you get what you give’ is experienced is when Heck Tate covers up Bob Ewell’s murder to protect Boo from the public eye. Mr. Tate was wise enough to know the punishment for killing innocent people, as experienced from Bob Ewell and Tom Robinson. Heck saw first hand what happened and how it ends for Mr. Ewell. Secondly, it was again karma for Bob as his murder was merely shown as ‘clumsy drunk Ewell fell on his kitchen knife and died’ no one would know the truth about his murder and even in his death no one would have sympathy for him or try and stand up for him. Even in death Bob Ewell’s fate got to him, he will soon be forgotten and any memory people have of him will be the rude drunk of Maycomb, as he was.
Boo is the mysterious savior who killed Bob Ewell to save Jem and Scout. Boo Radley is far from a monster. After he saves them and takes them home Sheriff Heck Tate arrives. Heck Tate explains to them that they should tell everyone that Bob fell on his own knife instead of making Boo looking like a savior, but Atticus doesn 't understand. Sheriff Heck Tate explains, “Well it 's sort of like
His justification for the crime shows clear instability“I loved the old man. He had never wronged me… For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye!”(Poe,1843) This shows that he is mentally ill because he had no real reason or prior experiences with the man to explain why he murdered him except for that he had an ‘evil eye’. Additionally, his mental illness caused him to hear voices and sounds for example “I heard things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell.”(Poe,1843) With this in mind, it is necessary for him to be placed in care with proper medical supervision.
Before the rabies infection Cujo was a very loyal dog to the Cambers’ family. He would resemble the stereotypical dog by getting the newspaper every morning. After the infection, he starts killing the Camberses and causing a problem, the very loyal dog turned into a beast with murderous intentions. Cujo, while not an uplifting tale, tells a very real story containing situations that could possibly happen, which is why it makes such a bold statement about people and the
These reviews I have seen are mostly positive. One of the reviews says it should be read and loved by everyone. (Jack London’s Naturalism) The review says this because the story shows a odd but lovable hero that in the end if he believes and tries his best in the end he can achieve his goals and live the life he would want to live. Another review says that it is really good but is not for young animal lovers. (Call of the Wild- Book Review) It says this because in the story the hero has to do some bad things like rip out other dogs or even humans jugulars to save himself or some of his new found friends, but in the end the review still says it is a really good book.
